St. Mary’s Chambers is recognised as one of the leading specialist family law sets. We invest a great deal of time and effort in supporting our pupils through the training process and all pupillages are offered on the basis that a tenancy will be available if satisfactorily completed.

Pupils are mentored throughout their time with us by three different supervisors, making sure they have access to a wide range of work and styles of advocacy. Supervisors also encourage their pupils to attend court and complete paperwork for other members of chambers. This ensures that future barristers fully immerse themselves in the St. Mary’s culture and understand our approach to providing legal services and client care. In the last four years we have offered six tenancies following pupillage.

We are looking for two pupils for 2015 and, if there are enough outstanding candidates, two pupils for 2016. Start dates may need to be adjusted slightly.
